So i read through the Piranaha Repair FAQ, in particular the section about leaking down the barrel, but my R6 still leaks. I don't know whats wrong. there was nothing wrong with the valve o-rings, but i replaced them anways (with tank o-rings *same size and diameter as original valve o-rings, I think?*). i replaced the cup seal with the extra one it comes with, and the valve is in the correct way. Any other help would be really appreciated. i want to see if i can fix the problem before i send it in to PMI. thanks
The brass retaining pin. Did you tighten it? If you tighten it you push the valve body up hard and that lets it leak past the Orings and up into the barrel. The brass pin needs to be in but loose. Let it out until you don't feel any load against the valve body but so that it's still below the surface of the body. The trigger frame will hold it in place so it doesn't come out.
If none of this fixes it then your valve body may be faulty or it was damaged in making it. The valve body has a slightly raised rim around the larger side hole for the cupseal to seal against. Have a look at that and feel it for any sort of ding. Even a small ding or nick is all it would take to loose the seal you're after.
I just thought I'd take a quick peek and then the world went all yellow.....
squirt a ton of oil around the valve
dont even take it out of your marker
you might think that is too much oil, but in blowbacks that is fine
excess iol doesnt mess anything up
just clean your gun out afterwards
you might have the valve body in backwards thats why mine leaked if not listen to dead body
If your a gay Paintball player put this in ur sig
If you don't buy into Smartparts corporate bulls**t put this in your sig.
